Happy birthday to.... ME..... Happy birthday to... ME.......
Y'all, it's my BIRTHDAY! And I promise I'm not crazy or going all Leslie Knope (Parks & Rec, check it), but I LOVE making my own birthday desserts.... I know exactly what goes in it, hospitality and making food is a love language of mine, and frankly, cost-effective... cuz that's how we roll!
I wanted to make cobbler for Easter and was having trouble finding one free of gluten, dairy, sugar and all the junk our family doesn't eat (especially since I'm on a Whole30 kick right now with a buddy, holla!), so I modified one I found courtesy of good ole Betty Crocker and made it HEALTHY; it was so delish two weeks ago, I decided it's what I wanted for my bday dessert. And TBH, this is good any dang time. Any day is a good day for cobbler, amiright?!
This one has organic frozen raspberries and blueberries in it, but you can adjust the fruits according to your fancy, what's in season, whatever. I can't wait to try fresh peaches and strawberries in one this summer... (drools)
But back to my birthday... here's the crazy-easy, healthy, yummy recipe; give it a spin!
GF/DF/Sugar-Free (DELISH) Birthday Berry Cobbler
2.5 lbs fruit, fresh or frozen- sliced if whole fruit ie, apples, peaches (this was 2 10-oz bags each of frozen organic raspberries and blueberries for me)
1 cup Lakanto monkfruit sweetener (sub for Swerve or your healthier sugar option of choice)
1 whole lemon, cut in half and juice squeezed out (remove any seeds)
1/3 cup organic tapioca flour
1 cup organic blanched almond flour
1/3 cup Lakanto monkfruit sweetener
1/4 cup softened or melted organic coconut oil (or butter or ghee)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
2 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 tsp each: ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp warm filtered water
- Heat up oven to 400* C and in a large pot, combine filling ingredients and mix together to coat the fruit. Bring pot to a boil for 3-5 minutes, then turn off burner and place mixture into a casserole dish greased with coconut oil/butter/ghee.
- Mix together the topping ingredients until just crumbly/soft dough and drop little bits on top of the filling.
- Place into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the topping turns a nice golden color and filling is hot and bubbly.
- Enjoy alone, served with coconut milk/almond milk ice cream or simple coconut whipped cream!
(Serves approx 8-10.... if you decide to share it)
